Why? because they have our backs 24/7.
The first to arrive and provide life-saving support at the scene of an injury, our first responders are there for us 24/7. They immediately jump into dangerous and critical situations, without fear for their own safety in order to help us.
Countless lives have been saved, properties protected and more because of their bravery. This is why Freedom Day USA has developed the First Lunch program, held each year during First Responder's Week (FRW - held the second week of May).
Teaming up with local restaurants, such as Chick-Fil-A, businesses across the USA are providing lunch to the first responders in their area during FRW. We are also challenging each of YOU, our community members, to personally say thank you by taking lunch to a first responder, or sending one through us.
We realize that buying lunch may not change someone's life - BUT it is a small thank you for our First Responders. The Goal of First Lunch is to show our appreciation to those who take care of us when we need them most!
THREE EASY WAYS TO SAY THANK YOU!
- Businesses and Organizations - Fill out this form to CONTACT US and we will walk you through how to be part of First Lunch.
- Individuals - if you see a First Responder while you're out and about, pick up their tab for lunch OR deliver lunch to a first responder or group of responders in your area. Learn more about how to participate here.
- Donations - can't get out to personally treat someone to lunch? You can donate funds to help buy a lunch for a hero! Box lunches are typically $10 each and you can donate here.
